    Cool find bottle hunting

    Your post reminded me of this little guy. I haven't dug in at least 30+ years. I dug this little guy up probably back in the late 70's in San Jose, CA. Then, and until last year it had the general shape of a toy train engine but was pretty much just a lump of rust. So I'm thinking now I have...

    Success to The Railroad / Eagle Flasks

    Beautiful bottles and great shots. What exactly were the bottles used for? I know the subject matter but were they ever in commercial use or sold merely to support the new enterprise? Thanks

    Heard it was Rare

    The only thing I remember about this glass shard is someone else made a big fuss over what it was and how rare it was. I've kept it all these years (probably 45+) and it's high time I found out. it says ****EENICKE and below it it says JOSE i'm sure that's San Jose where I dug it. I'm sure...

    Smallest Bottles You Own

    By the way... forgot to ask.,.. does anyone have any info on the little brown Cutter bottle? Hardly enough liquid to do much to anything! The Warner’s pill bottle is from 1888 and still has it’s pink pills. They came wrapped like this then 12 to a case.

    Smallest Bottles You Own

    I’ll put my 2 cents in here! I’ve posted this guy before. Just says Cutter up the side. The labeled Log Cabin Liver Pills is just under 2.25” and the Cutter is 1.25”.

    Threaded "Kelloggs" Whiskey Pint More Info

    Then all the more reason for me to cork it. Do you know any sources?

    Threaded "Kelloggs" Whiskey Pint More Info

    Thank you. This is great info. Pretty much dates the bottle between 1906-18 and the dump I was digging in I’d say dated to the early end of this period. Looking through the forums as far as repair seems the answer is , “if you find a good source let me know”. Finally does anyone know where I’d...

    Threaded "Kelloggs" Whiskey Pint More Info

    Hi I dug this Kellogg's pint sized whisky over 40 years ago. Unfortunately I think I chipped it with the shovel back then. I remember the hole wasn't deep enough to be hitting dump but I did. Anyway the bottle I remember is scarce due to it being manufactured in 1906 in SF just before the...

    My smallest bottle I've ever found

    Not a Competition I found this little guy in a shovel full of dirt when I was cleaning out the hole on a dig many years ago. It says "Cutter" on the side and that's that!. It's a towering 1 inch tall and .625 inches in diameter. I think I once say that it was a poison but not sure. If it was...
